I literally could NOT tell you how many times I’ve made this salad. It’s a total family classic that is so simple and so delicious I decided to share it with you all!

It’s really versatile and you can add any veggies you like, even leftovers you want to use up. Cubes carrots and zucchini work really well in this as well.

 

 

I love to scoop tablespoons of this salad over a big bowl of grees, add a fresh chopped tomato and a dollop of hummus for easy lunches throughout the week.

It keeps fabulously and the flavors really combine to taste even better the next day. If you’re making it ahead, just omit the peanuts until ready to serve as these will go soggy. The sultanas, however, go plump and juice and really pop!

The dressing has just the right amount of tart and zing, that complements the sweet from the sultanas so well. You can try and replace these with raisins or even cranberries too.
